We are now midway through August and this summer seems to have flown by faster than the summers past. Lots of fish been taking icenaps, and we aren’t done yet!
This has been another typical summer inshore fishing here in Galveston for speckled trout, redfish, sheepshead, drum, flounder, mangrove snapper and lots and lots of sharks! The winds have been calm most of the summer and we have had very little rainfall. We are beginning to see signs of redfish migration into the passes which means we are on schedule for another great redfish spawning season. Another great upcoming season is the Galveston Fall Flounder Run. Our Galveston Fishing Charters have seen some very nice flounder in the bays and marshes this summer chasing shad and this tells us the fall flounder fishing and gigging should be hot!
Our Deep-Sea fishing charters have seen some very nice red snapper taking ice naps as well as vermillion snapper. Also, Captain Greg Jr has been having a great summer for swordfish. On the calmer days when the seas allow – he has been able to get to the swordfish grounds and deep drop and then get limits of Red Snapper on his way in. The kingfish bite has been tougher than usual this year, and hopefully next year that will change. Also, some mahi have been hitting the deck too.
As fall approaches, it is a good time to be thinking about a fall fishing trip. This year we will be offering swordfish trips, wahoo trips, flounder gigging and of course Bay/Marsh trips and jetty trips. The Bull Red run will be underway before we know it, and that is a great opportunity for folks to hook up on some mean RedDragons for a fight of their life!
Give us a call or book online here, and let’s get you hooked up to finish up 2023!
